hey im back with bad news I dont know where else i could post this

ok, i have this hard drive that was once a very flourishing and energetic

drive, but one day my poor little drive died, unexplainably, and i got a new one

and lost all files.. so heres the problem, i put it back into my comp.

as a Primary Slave drive (2nd) and deleted the files off it for extra storage

for AVIs, WAVs, MPEGs, MP2s, and etc..BUT everytime it read something

off the drive it says file is corrupt or that it cant read it!

What should I do?? format it or sumthin? Im lost here and not sure if

this is the rightplace to post, but if anyone can help please, that would be

great thanx

You could try reformatting it, and jorel posted a program for repairing damaged sectors of a hard disk here. I would try that first, then reformat it completely and then it should (hopefully) be fine.

(WARNING: Reformatting erases all data on a hard disk.)
